Named after the tour from which the performances were taken, "Music Is Our Friend" is an official bootleg featuring all of King Crimson's final performance in North America at Washington in September 2021.

This 2CD set is completed with four pieces from the first concert of the tour's second leg in Albany. 

Taken together, these tracks represent both a beginning and an end of a tour that took place despite almost insurmountable issues. By the time King Crimson reached Washington, the band was in ferocious form with a powerful, energetic set with some arrangements reworked and differing from previous tours.

Featuring a restored middle section of ‘Larks' Tongues In Aspic Part I’ that had not been played since 1973,  substantial keyboard arrangements, Tony Levin on upright bass during ‘Neurotica’ giving the piece an extra swing, there's an emotional set-closer, ‘Starless‘, and an immensely powerful ‘21st Century Schizoid Man’ as an encore.
